Default what all do you keep in your car?

so i started this thread to see if any of you guys keep stuff in your car/trunk out of the ordinary... i for instance keep my tools a bunch of bungee cords my detailing stuff, floormats incase i need to get under the car or change a tire jumper cables a cigarette lighter powered air pump a can of fix a flat and a gas can. ive got AAA but they have a crappy response time and i hate relying on other people.

takes up alot less space than you would imagine...

Nothing. Once your car is broken into once you tend to not leave things in it.

just a little craftsman 2 tonner in a plastic case. the spare sits on top but my trunk is huge so i don't really lose much at all. plus i lined the old spare tire well with foam so i have hidden storage under the carpet. also have hidden storage under my back seats. will go take some pics for ya

damn... i wish my seat folded like that. ive gotta pop mine lol. and quite frankly, i resent the fact you can keep your trunk that clean. i spent about 20 mins vacuuming my car at the boomerang car wash before i would dare taking any pics lol. im debating the full size spare. gotta make a junk yard run for some f body door hinges some time in the near future. might look for a car with some decent tires on it.

you kidding me that'* dirty LOL i haven't cleaned it once since owning it and i've hauled almost every part from my old bonnie in it. the top of my rear seat folds down as well so i can actually have my trunk expand all the way up to the back of the front seats.

im swayed by the fact that you still have lots of cargo space, and i know because i rented one your trunk is smaller than mine.... i can put my head against the back seat and my shins rest on the trunk latch, and im 5'10" lol. and my trunk was filled with pine needles. helped one of the gf'* coworkers do grave blankets. never again.

and again, i hate you and your folding seats lol. i have a piece of scaffolding behind my seat. the widest spot is 36" towards the top and it only is that wide about 1" 1/4 tall. i know this because i hauled a door home from home depot that was 36" wide and was able to close my trunk.... barely fit through the hole though lol.
